The following story has all the earmarks of the classic chain mail scam, predating email and the internet itself.

"A woman who works with Jean's mother at the American Bar Association called Mrs. Fields cookies and asked for the attached recipe. She was told there was a two fifty charge for the recipe. She assumed it was $2.50 and she charged it to her VISA. It was not $2.50 but $250.00. In order to get her monies worth she is passing the recipe out to everyone."

Yeah, sure. But the cookies are good nonetheless.

Mix together all ingredients. Add 24 oz. of chocolate chips, 1 8-oz. Hershey bar (grated) and 3 c chopped nuts. Bake on UNgreased cookie sheet. Make golf-ball sized cookies, bake at 375 degrees 6 minutes. Makes 112 cookies.

**250.00 recipe. Give to everyone.
